04.04.2010 Valorie Zimmerman (valorie): Installing Lucid beta -- Adventure Story or Buddy Movie? It seemed so simple. I went to Kubuntu.org and downloaded and installed the update yesterday afternoon, no problem! This morning, KpackageKit informed me that I had over 1000 updates, and since I was busy with Alsachat, I decided to just let it go, although I was a bit apprehensive about the power situation. We had a wind advisory going on, and I know that disconnecting during updates is a very bad idea. With about 30 minutes to go, however, KpackageKit crashed! When I tried to use the console (as I should have in the first place), I couldn't because KpackageKit had crashed, and not cleanly qu...02.03.2012 Want to hack on Akregator? Here is how to set up the environment. Hello KDE community! First I want to thank everyone who showed interest for my last post and for the “Akregator reborn” project in general. The good news of today is that Christophe Giboudeaux (krop) did an amazing job in the last week with moving all the stuff that concerns Akregator in a new branch of kdepim. In the following, I will explain more in details what happened. I will also give some tips for the non-experts on how to set up an environment to comfortably hack on Akregator. As you might remember from my previous post, the plan is porting Akregator to the Akonadi framewor...05.01.2016 Use ownCloud provided Packages, then VM, then Zip, no distro packages. There are many ways to install and run ownCloud. What is best depends on your situation but some general rules of thumb can be given.Use ownCloud Provided Packages If You CanThe best solution from a security and stability point of view are the official ownCloud packages, provided you have the basic know-how needed to run your own Linux server.Packages give you the advantage of a relatively clean and easy upgrade process, with the ownCloud team taking care of any special steps which have to be taken. The upgrade itself will still have to be kicked off by the system administrator (see our latest...19.09.2016 KDevelop 5.0.1 released KDevelop 5.0.1 released One month after the release of KDevelop 5.0.0, we are happy to release KDevelop 5.0.1 today, fixing a list of issues discovered with 5.0.0. The list of changes below is not exhaustive, but just mentions the most important improvements; for a detailed list, please see our git history. An update to version 5.0.1 is highly recommended for everyone using 5.0.0. Issues fixed in 5.0.1 Fix a deadlock in the background parser, which especially occured on projects containing both C++ and Python/JS/QML code and caused either parsing or the whole application to freeze randomly.

That is surely not the end of the world. You can try to polish your growing git skills with that subversion repository by using git-svn. The idea is that you use git and then, once a while, you place the code in the subversion repository. This has several extra advantages than doing git only. First, there is a backup done by Google to your repository. In addition, other developers that know only how to use friendly GUI tools, e.g. Google Code Search and this gives more exposure and promotes code sharing and reuse....31.03.2008 devel/mercurial - 1.0 Upgrade to the long-awaited Mercurial 1.0 release!

Where: good opportunity to get to grips with the openSUSE thanks to AMD — on a build host of over 100 CPUs. Currently supported distributions are: CentOS 5 Debian Etch Fedora 7 Fedora 8 Fedora Core 6 Mandriva 2006 Mandriva 2007 Mandriva 2008 RHEL 4 RHEL 5 SLES 9 SLE 10 SUSE Linux 10.1 openSUSE 10.2 openSUSE 10.3 openSUSE Factory Ubuntu 6.06 Ubuntu 7.04 Ubuntu 7.10 With the build service yo...27.04.2009 Brad Hards (bradh): Experimenting with gcc plugins One of the new features proposed for GCC 4.5 is the ability to use plugins. I'm a big fan of plugin architectures, especially in open source software. I think that plugins provide a really nice starting point for potential developers. So you can start with something simple and well defined, and grow into the rest of the system. Personally, the idea of understanding all of GCC is just overwhelming. But perhaps I could do a really basic plugin that can do an additional static check. The idea is based on mygcc which allows extensible checkers to be written for gcc. As an example, consider a (C) A...15.11.2009 Jason Kasper (vanRijn): Having spent a few days with his MacBook Pro… I recently blogged about Desktop Linux possibly having some core/fundamental problems that might be keeping it from enjoying mainstream adoption and 3rd party developer attention as compared to, say, OS X. To my immediate defense, I’ll say that it was actually more of a brain dump and rant (True Story!) than a well-thought-out dissertation on all of the issues at hand. The impetus in this case was: Frustration with a particular admittedly proprietary application that didn’t use to have any problems in Ubuntu 8.10, and since then has been nothing but trouble for me and roughly 90,0...14.02.2013 QtSerialPort in Qt 5.1 Hi everyone,I would like to introduce you to a project I have been working on lately under the Qt Project umbrella. Hope, you find it useful. :) History The serial port technology is quite old, but still in active use today. It is mostly used for communicating with modems, sending control commands and so forth where the universal serial bus is not necessary. I am sure many of you recall the time when soldering the pins and cable manually to get it right for the embedded boards. :-)About a year ago, I was looking for a library for my project to handle the serial port communication with the...
